Happy Friday Friends! It is hard to believe that it is a little less than two weeks until Thanksgiving! I am hoping to get my holiday shopping done by Thanksgiving. I would like to avoid the stores at all costs this holiday season! As usual, I am sharing some Friday Favorites in home, style and family.

Treat Basket for Delivery Drivers

Earlier this week on Instagram, I shared one of our favorite ways to take care of our delivery drivers this holiday season. I print out this thank you note and then fill a bin of goodies for all of the mail carrier, UPS, Amazon and Instacart drivers.

Christmas Decorating

Another favorite this week was getting our Christmas decorations out. We have not put up our tree yet, but I wanted to get out all of the rest of our Christmas decorations. Then, I wouldn’t be tempted to buy decorations we did not need.

This year, I decided to swap out our usual tree skirt for this Woven Wicker Christmas tree collars. I think it will be a really clean look and I’m excited for the new collar to arrive in a few weeks.

I am trying not to purchase a lot of new Christmas decorations. However, I did find a few things at Target that fit in with the decor I already have.

This set of mini rainbow Nutcrackers are a fun addition to our colorful Christmas decor in our basement playroom. I got both sets, one of green and blue nutcrackers and also the pink, red and yellow mini nutcrackers.

Then, I also grabbed this set of mini bottlebrush trees. They look so cute.

While I do love traditional Christmas colors, I also love the bright and colorful decorations too!

Basic Turtlenecks at Gap

My favorite style find of the week were these good, basic turtlenecks from the Gap. I’ve been on the hunt for solid color turtlenecks to wear under cardigans and sweaters this winter. These turtlenecks are thin and lightweight, so they are the perfect layering top.

Gap is having a 40% (50% if you are a Gap reward member) off sale right now, so these turtlenecks are a great deal. I scooped up gray, black and pink tops.

Tween Girl Gift Ideas

If you are looking for gift ideas for tween girls, this week, I shared an updated Tween Girl Gift Guide. There are so many fun ideas and even my teenager daughter would still love most of these items. She has many of these gifts!
